I maintain pulse in [community] and couldn't agree more, this package
should go to [extra], since it is a makedepend for a lot of packages
which many users have to rebuild by themselves at the moment.

If anybody wants to step up, get in touch with me, I can recap on the
current package situation and give a lot of tips for a mostly
hassle-free maintenance.

Since as far as I know not all devs read this ml, it could be a good
idea if someone forwarded this message to arch-dev-public.
